President Thomas S. Monson has said:
"I testify to you that our promised blessings are beyond measure. Though the storm clouds may gather, though the rains may pour down upon us, our knowledge of the gospel and our love of our Heavenly Father and of our Savior will comfort and sistain us and bring joy to our hearts as we walk uprightly and keep the commandments . . . My beloved brothers and sisters, fear not. Be of good cheer. The future is as bright as your faith."
